Fixation Durations

Fixation Durations

In this project we work on fixation durations with a newly developed paradigm. When your eyes are scanning the environment using saccades, you are in a constant decision process: Should I continue looking at the current thing to processes it better, or should I continue exploration of the scene? We are interested in this decision process and try to disentangle factors that influence the fixation duraiton.

You can find the current version of the preprint @ OSF
